Going Beyond The Pretty Dress Must be a Mandate in this Time
New book seeking nominations of radical Christian women serving beyond church walls
By: Pecan Tree Publishing
That is ... except for a powerful group of women in ministry who serve BEYOND THE PRETTY DRESS. Some might consider them bad girls, rebels, out of order, out of control and even - out of their minds. They use it as fuel for their fire and passion to help others.
Thomas Freeman Books, a Pecan Tree Publishing imprint, is asking you to NOMINATE THESE WOMEN. The first ladies, the ministers of music or other areas of ministries, the pastors, the deaconesses, the ushers ... The women who have rolled up their sleeves, held up the hem of their pretty dress, taken off their church hats and gotten their hands dirty for the cause of the ONE who needed their service.
The women nominated will be invited to submit the service story that has impacted them most, what it taught them about God and about who they are as vessels of ministry, and why going BEYOND THE PRETTY DRESS must be a mandate in this time. Whether their service was to an abused woman, a molested child, a rejected man, a soul tormented by mental illness - we believe their stories will encourage and challenge others to follow their quiet lead like never before. Nominations thus far include a woman who literally fought her way out of crack houses and now invests her personal funds to taking others like her from the streets and shelters to church, and leading a weekly Bible study. A woman who aided women in an African village to find their voice. A minister who found her faith and her voice in the midst of extreme loss. Plus, First Lady Tania Maxwell Carroll, Palm Beach, Florida joins the project as a Contributing Editor. Are you or someone you know called to be included in this project?
If selected, prospective nominees, must agree to assist in marketing the title and participate in various promotional opportunities. Full details will be provided in a nominee packet. Nominations close July 21, 2018. Nominations may be made by visiting: https://beyondtheprettydress.weebly.com/
